What does your name (Handle) mean?

Recommended Posts

Just thought this would be fun to find out what the meaning behind some of your handles would be.  Unless it is obvious like Glenn or Keri's or ILikebass. 

But if you have some unique name or something you would like to share I think this would be fun.

Mine is just my First Initial and last name, not exciting I know, but most of my friends call me B. Lee

Name is Brandon btw, and yes like the actor and no my dad is not Bruce Lee. I have heard it all my life.

Maybe perhaps get the curiosity out, I know I would like to know the story behind some.

Thanks,

Brandon

Grimlin....Named after the movie character "The Gremlins"....Some reason i always reminded people of those little gremlins running haywire."When" i had hair i had green streaks running down both sides....That also probably helped them give my nickname a little bit.

It's been my nickname for years.....and still is.  :)

"The Gremlins" was also my favorite movie growing up.  ;D...I realize i spell it with an "I" instead of an "E"...There's really no significant reason for that other than that's just the way i spell it...  :-[

It seems childish...i know....  ;D

Cool thread! Well when I signed up for the forum, I tried to think of a cool one...and there you get Bass XL. Just thought everyone wants an XL bass, so there you go.

and no...i do not wear an XL shirt (I've had a few people ask me that via pm)

Couldn't think of anything, looked around me and saw the game "Spore".

The rest is history :D

My boat, even though it didn't start that way. 

I signed up and was going to use the handle Bass_Ackwards until the very next day someone else posted who already used almost the exact same name.  The difference between a dash -vs- an underscore was too close and would have led to confusion.  So I changed it.

I picked mine because I couldn't think of anything else that wasn't already taken. Crankenstein is what a buddy of mine calls crankbaits. When we're fishing if one of is using a crankbait we'll say "throwin' the ol' crankenstein" or "caught him on the crankentein". Ironically,  I'm only a fair-to decent crankbait fisherman.

My name is Leo and a lot of folks who know me think I am a nice guy so they call me Uncle Leo. They do not know me as well as they think. Ha Ha.

I do have nieces and nephews also.

I've been using this name ever since the wife and I got our first joint email account (Juno, lol) in the mid 90's. It's actually the first three letters of my name and the first four letters of my wife's name. Stasher was already taken, so it became Stasher1.

I use the same name on every forum I'm registered on, so if you see the user name stasher1 somewhere, chances are pretty good that it's me.

SPEEDBEAD is the name of an old model Terminator T-1 spinnerbait.  It is the lure that got me hooked on bass fishing.

The avatar stays as "The Governator" (when I can get it to stay) for this reason too.

My favorite Lake Fork Tackle carolina rig bait. Have had it since they first came out. Maybe even a little before, a guide on Fork gave me some in a zip lock bag the first time I used them.

When I was born, my mother named me David and I decided to be creative and go with Dave. I know, I know, it sounds crazy but, it's working for me so far.

Mine is the abbreviation of my website that I have not had the time to update in a while. I had to add something to end because the username couldn't be the same as the login name. So I changed it from CFFF to CFFF 1.5. I didn't like CFFF1 or CFFF2.

When I first joined back in 05', I was a senko addict, so I went with Senko77.  I wish I could change it because I very rarely throw senkos now, but since I've had it for so long, people know me as it....so I just stick with it.

Just about every forum member I've met has pronounced my "handle" Gotti; like the New York Mafioso. Not exactly what I intended.

It's a play on pronunciation.

GH as in rouGH

O as in wOmen

TI as in naTIon.

I've been fishing for like, fifty years, maybe sixty. That's why I chose mine.
